    Default Monster Man-Eating Catfish Caught in Guangdong

    http://www.asianoffbeat.com/default.asp?Display=752

    Each year, a few people will be drowned mysteriously in Huadu's Furong Reservoir. It was not until recently when the son of a certain official went swimming in the reservoir with his friend and were drowned that the secret was unravelled!

    It's a 3 metre long man-eating catfish whose head alone is 1 metre wide! After cutting up the catfish people were surprised to find the remains of a man inside!

    Because this was a huge incident, and the local government was afraid of the impact on local tourism, they imposed an embargo on the news, but people came away with these pictures taken on their cell phones of the man-eating fish!

    Swimming in the reservoir is now forbidden because it is feared another similar man-eating catfish is still lurking in the waters.









    holy crap I am going to think twice before I ever swim in any damn lake again.
    damn. crazy how u swimming and a creature this huge chases after u.

    ahuh great...it's not a catfish...it's a whale shark which actually eats plankton.. so either the story is false or the locals don't know the difference between the ocean and a lake/river...lol

    Then it must be a baby Whale shark because its very small.

    The story behind it is obviously a hoax because 1) it's written very poorly and 2) cell phones cant take that good of pictures.

    You can't tell me that's not a Whale Shark.



    Man-eating catfish my foot. I work with marine biology every day, even catching sharks for science, and that's a Whale Shark.

    I wish I had your job. How did you get into that? Did you keep fish when you were growing up?

    I love my fish, they keep me busy and keep me relaxed at the same time.

    it's BS. that's not a catfish IMO. there's no whiskers and that's the defining characteristic of the catfish and it's namesake. looks like a whale shark to me which is completely harmless to humans. here is the Mekong giant catfish of asia.
